On this trip we will be helping the City of Sammamish establish a trail system on one of its newest park properties, Evans Creek. The 179 acres that make up the preserve were formally farmland and the area includes wetlands, open fields and wooded uplands. The first phase of the trail system will be over 2 miles long and vary from wider gravel surfaced trails that meander through meadows and open forests to smaller trails that run through thicker forests near the uplands. Come on out and join us in building this brand new trail system.
This is a youth work party. Please bring a signed parental release form to the work party.
Evans Creek Preserve is old farm land that was purchased by the City of Sammamish to both protect the natural landscape and to provide people with recreational opportunities. The 179 acre site varies from nearly flat meadows to steep slopes. It includes a variety of habitats, including wetland, riparian and forested upland. The first phase of the trail system is over 2 miles long and includes several different trail types including ADA, boardwalks, gravel surface and and more primitive natural surface trails. We will be building some of the gravel surfaced and primitive natural surface trails and any structures needed on the trails including puncheons and turnpikes.
From near the end of SR 520 eastbound take the exit for Redmond Way/SR 202 East. Take a right at the end of the ramp onto SR 202 E/Redmond Way. Follow SR 202 E/Redmond Way/Redmond-Fall City Road for 3.7 miles and turn right onto 224th Ave NE. The sign for 224th Ave NE is on the left side of the road. There is a sign for NE 34th Way on the right side of the road that can be confusing. After a short distance on 224th Ave NE there is an intersection and NE 39th Way goes off to the left (you will see a sign for Canterbury on the left). Continue straight ahead past a sign that says "Dead End Private Road." As the paved road ends and the gravel road begins, take a right into the driveway just beyond the creek and park past the old abandoned house. Approximate address 3750 224th Avenue Northeast, Sammamish, WA
